    None. Would like to work only part time and this was not available and neither were the hours available at this type job

    I have been working at LSU full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits (but expensive) and very flexible with schedule, especially if you take classes and work at the same time.

    Cons

    Salary leaves something to be desired. The benefits offer great coverage, but are not included in the salary, so you will have to plan on 1/5 of your take-home going toward your benefits (elections notwithstanding)

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have a whole lot to say here, other than LSU professional workers are some of the university's greatest resources. If just 5% of the athletics budget were absorbed to compensate employees properly, every staff member at LSU would get a 10-15% raise (meaning a living wage for some).

    I have been working at LSU full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work environment in the actual classroom of our Deaf & HOH (Hard of Hearing) students where we facilitate the students college and learning experience by building a bridge of communication for our students between their professor and fellow students within the classroom setting. Excellent pay scale. The supervisor is TOP NOTCH and phenomenal at her job, where she coordinates and manages not only the employees of the Disability Office, but also the roster of our students. Open communication between us, the captionists and our supervisor- her door is always open to us. I love being able to be outside between classes and not being stuck in a stuffy office ALL day. Great camaraderie in our group of captionists and sign-language interpreters. I could go on and on- the point being is I wouldn't want to work anywhere else as I love my career.

    Cons

    The only downside I can think of is not having any benefits because I'm classified as "transient". The pay is great, and that makes up for some of this, but it would still be wonderful if full benefits were also an incentive to employment.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any "advice" to my management (supervisor). She is the BEST supervisor I've ever had, and she is phenomenal in her job!
